Growing up in Toronto with a Jamaican DJ father, Jay James was exposed to the art of selecting, but he also received a musical education living in Detroit for many years. One of his most formative memories was attending the Detroit Music Festival in 1999, which set him down a path of DJing and producing all shades of soulful and funky house music. When not playing BELLOSOUND gigs at venues like the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto and W Toronto, you can find DJ 2TEN streaming on Twitch, or releasing original tunes on Apple Music, Beatport, Traxsource, and other streaming platforms.
